Rockstar Games is breaking new boundaries in immersion by using the voice-overs of "actual, real gang members" in Grand Theft Auto V. Contributing writer and producer 'Lazlow" Jones said that thousands of hours of audio had been gathered by going into people's homes and recording them speaking as they would in real life.
"When we record all these ambient characters we go towards authenticity," he said. "In the game there's these rival gangs. There's Black gangs, Latino gangs ... we recruited a guy who gets gang members, actual real gang members, like El Salvadoran gang dudes with amazing tattoos, one of which had literally gotten out of prison the day before."
Rockstar also released a big batch new screens that's now only 9 days away. Want to scuba dive? Or maybe just hunt scuba divers with submersible vehicles? It's all possible. Grand Theft Auto V drops on September 17.
Is realism and immersion not your thing? Then check out this video of the long-delayed Wolfenstein: The New Order of our favorite hard-times American spy William "B.J." Blazkowicz, who wakes up in an insane asylum forty years after the Nazi's have won the war. Wouldn't you know it? They’re up to it again!
